Новости - Сергей Шойгу: «цветные революции» развиваются, и Украина пострадала от крупнейшей из них

Министр обороны России генерал армии Сергей Шойгу во время выступления на Международной конференции по безопасности заявил, что феномен «цветных революций» продолжает развиваться и приобретает глобальный характер. Он отметил: чтобы «вовлечь Киев в свою орбиту, США и их ближайшие союзники перешли все мыслимые "черты"», что не могло не вызвать реакцию России.
«Феномен "цветных революций" продолжает развиваться и приобретает глобальный характер. Именно об этом мы предупреждали на прошлой Московской конференции. Попытки организации так называемую революцию зонтиков в Гонконге, расшатывание обстановки в Венесуэле — все это звенья той же цепи. И, разумеется, крупнейшая трагедия в череде "цветных революций" — Украина. В результате антиконституционной смены власти страна была ввергнута в гражданскую войну», — приводит «РИА Новости» слова господина Шойгу.

Vladimir Putin Q&A trailer: This is how all political events should be publicised - Europe - World

Video: The buildup to the latest Vladimir Putin Q&A has all the trappings of a movie blockbuster
Note: We do not store your email address(es) but your IP address will be logged to prevent abuse of this feature. Please read our Legal Terms & Policies
The tired format of PMQs - men jeering, papers waving - is in need of a bit of rejuvenation, and perhaps the latest round of TV debates will do just that.
Yet the British broadcasters and political parties could take a lesson from Russia when it comes to making the most of a political event - even if it is going to be rather formulaic.
President Vladimir Putin is set to sit down for his annual TV Q&A, where carefully-selected questions from the Russian populace are posed to the world's most influential man (well, according to a Timemagazine poll anyway).
To gear Russians up for this Putin PR love-in, Russia-24, the state-owned news channel, published a trailer of cinematic-proportions, making the event appear more like a media junket with your favourite film star rather than a man whose penchant for democracy is rather questionable.
Enter warships, fighter planes, flag-waving crowds and the man himself delivering a stirring speech flanked by army men. The video shows Putin meeting with the leaders of Germany and China, and then shows him in a split screen with Barack Obama, the two men sharing a smile amid the tension.

В России из-за лесных и степных пожаров возбуждены более 30 уголовных дел // НТВ.Ru

1 Share
Как сообщает 
корреспондент НТВ Алексей Кондулуков
, за минувшие сутки площадь лесных пожаров в Сибири выросла почти вдвое. В основном горят Забайкальский край и Бурятия. Также немного Иркутская область, Республика Тыва и Хакасия, где, напомним, в минувшие выходные были уничтожены или повреждены огнем почти 1,5 тысячи домов, погибли 29 человек, пропали без вести трое. Около тысячи погорельцев обратились за медпомощью.


Нескольких пострадавших с обширными ожогами кожи сегодня вывезли на лечение в Москву. Их транспортировали на специальном самолете МЧС с медицинскими модулями. В Сибири сейчас на тушении работают 3 тысячи специалистов МЧС. Используются самолеты-амфибии и вертолеты с водосливным устройством. С неба на горящие леса сброшено более 100 тонн воды.


Сложная обстановка и на Дальнем Востоке. Пожарами там охвачены более 20 тысяч гектаров леса, в основном в Приамурье. В Благовещенске уже зафиксировано превышение на 30% содержания в воздухе оксида углерода.


Юрий Туранов
, житель села Новотроицкое: «Пошел пал оттуда, со стороны ЛЭП. Сначала думали, что все обойдется, ходили, ходили. А уже ближе к вечеру приехали пожарные, усилился сильный ветер. Собирайте документы, все на улицу».


Основными причинами возгораний специалисты называют неосторожное обращение с огнем местного населения и так называемые сельхозпалы. Все это на фоне сухой погоды и довольно сильного ветра. Правоохранительными органами в связи с пожарами уже возбуждены более 30 уголовных дел.

Россия сегодня опаснее Советского Союза, - экс-генсек НАТО

Россия хочет дестабилизировать Европу, втянув в гибридную войну, что делает её опаснее Советского Союза. Такое мнение в интервью изданию «Newsweek» озвучил бывший генеральный секретарь Североатлантического АльянсаАндерс Фог Расмуссен.

С его слов, даже СССР не так часто угрожал миру ядерным оружием, как это делает современная Россия. «В советское время они не решались говорить о ядерном конфликте.Теперь мы видим открытое обсуждение. В этом отношении Россия сегодня является более опасной, чем Советский Союз. СССР был более предсказуем, чем нынешнее руководство России», - заявил экс-генсек, добавив также, что Москва всеми силами пытается дестабилизировать европейские страны изнутри.

«Россия использует сочетание обычной войны (в Украине – ред.) с более утонченной пропагандистской кампанией дезинформации, в том числе используя своё финансовое влияние на страны НАТО», - сообщил Расмуссен, подчеркнув, что некоторые ультраправые и крайне левые силы Европы симпатизируют Путину и России. «У нас есть такие партии в Греции, Венгрии, Болгарии и Франции», - заявил он.

По мнению бывшего генсека НАТО, чтобы эффективно противостоять агрессии России Запад должен «перестать быть наивным». «Необходимо усилить методы борьбы против гибридных угроз. Нужно больше инвестиций в кибербезопасность, улучшить финансирование разведки, усовершенствовать координацию между союзниками», - заявил Расмуссен.

Заигрывания с террористами чревато последствиями, считают российские военные
Сегодня в 11:52, просмотров: 7042
Глава генштаба РФ Валерий Герасимов и министр обороны России Сергей Шойгу выступили на Международной конференция по безопасности. Они подняли главные темы — о действиях США и НАТО на международной арене, основные из которых, по мнению военных руководителей страны, направлены на дестабилизацию обстановки вокруг РФ, а также втягивание некоторых стран в эту конфронтацию.

В Москве проходит Международная конференция по безопасности, в которой принимают участие глава минобороны Сергей Шойгу, глава Генштаба Валерий Герасимов и другие.
О НАТО
Генерал Герасимов отметил, что последние действия НАТО на военную безопасность России. По его словам, общая численность регулярных вооруженных сил стран альянса превысила 3,7 миллиона человек, и присоединиться к НАТО намерены Черногория, Македония, Босния и Герцеговина, а также Грузия и Украина.
По его словам,на Уэльском саммите 2014 года одобрен план действий НАТО по повышению готовности к реагированию, в частности «усиление военного присутствия альянса в государствах Восточной Европы и Прибалтики». И эти действия, отметил Герасимов, «носят далеко не оборонительный характер».
Он отметил и увеличение количества учений Альянса. «Если в предыдущие годы в ходе учений отрабатывались в основном вопросы кризисного урегулирования и противодействия терроризму, то сегодня приоритет отдается решению задач в ходе военных действий с условным противником, в котором легко угадывается Российская Федерация», — подчеркнул он.
«Обвинение России в «агрессивной политике на постсоветском пространстве» и выдвижение тезиса «о необходимости ее сдерживания» сегодня стали основной движущей силой развития Организации североатлантического договора» - добавил Герасимов.
В свою очередь министр обороны РФ генерал армии Сергей Шойгу отметил, что некоторые страны Запада пытаются втянуть государства Азии и Латинской Америки в антироссийскую кампанию, выбирая в качестве цели изоляцию России. По его словам, в СМИ многих европейских государств раскручиваются ложные тезисы о необходимости сдерживания России, росте российской военной угрозы, которая якобы требует неотложной реакции НАТО.
О США
Глава Генштаба также отметил опасность неядерных средств «глобального удара» США. «В совокупности с реализацией планов по развитию ПРО это может создать угрозу нарушения стратегического ядерного баланса, который до сих пор является гарантом мировой стабильности, заявил Герасимов. - Все это формирует веские причины для принятия Российской Федерацией адекватных ответных мер».
«Развертывание противоракетных средств сопровождается нарушением со стороны США положений одного из важнейших договоров, обеспечивающих стратегическую стабильность в Европе — Договора о ракетах средней и меньшей дальности. Речь идет об использовании в размещаемых на территориях Румынии и Польши наземных комплексах ПРО «Иджис-Эшор» универсальных установок вертикального пуска МК-41, позволяющих, кроме противоракет «Стандарт-3», применять и крылатые ракеты типа «Томагавк»». - отметил Герасимов, добавив, что «в зону поражения крылатых ракет наземного и морского базирования попадает вся европейская часть РФ».
«Все прекрасно понимают, что для компенсации антироссийского потенциала глобальной ПРО Россия вынуждена предпринять соответствующие военно-технические меры. В итоге «неядерные» государства, на территории которых размещаются противоракетные средства, становятся объектами первоочередных ответных действий», — добавил Герасимов.
Развертывание американской системы ПРО он назвал «шагом к демонтажу действующей системы международной безопасности».
О террористах
В Генштабе также указали на то, что США и НАТО не задумываются о том, каким образом возникают террористические группировки по типу «Аль-Каиды»: «В стремлении любой ценой обеспечить свои интересы США и НАТО не задумываются над тем, откуда и как возникают такие «террористические империи». «Аль-Каида» не появилась сама по себе. Эта организация сформировались из числа моджахедов, воевавших с ограниченным контингентом советских войск в Афганистане на деньги США и их союзников», — сказал Герасимов.
Он отметил, что «не так давно участники ИГИЛ тоже были «хорошими» боевиками, щедро проплачиваемыми Западом «борцами за демократию» в Сирии».
По данным главы Генштаба, численность экстремистских организаций в мире с 1990-х годов выросла втрое — боевиков уже более 150 тысяч.
«Считаем крайне опасным заигрывание с террористами. Нельзя спокойно смотреть на то, как из различных стран уезжают новобранцы для армии «Исламского государства», — подтвердил слова главы Генштаба министр обороны Сергей Шойгу. Он добавил, что некоторые страны не задумываются, о том, что будет, когда через некоторое время опытные боевики вернутся домой. 
Об Украине и постсоветском пространстве
По словам генерала Герасимова, неопределенность ситуации на Украине не исключает военную опасность для России. «По сути, на Украине идет гражданская война, жертвами которой уже стали тысячи человек. Сложно предсказать, чем все это закончится. Мы не знаем, какие указания получают новые украинские власти от западных «кураторов» и куда может быть направлена агрессия Киева в дальнейшем», — сказал Герасимов, добавив, что в любом случае такая неопределенность не исключает военную опасность для России.
«Нельзя обойти вниманием и так называемые замороженные конфликты на постсоветском пространстве… На фоне обострения отношений РФ с США и Европой возрастает вероятность размораживания этих конфликтов, что грозит возникновением вооруженных столкновений вблизи границ нашего государства», — отметил представитель российского Генштаба.
По его словам, США и НАТО заинтересованы в развитии кризисных ситуаций на постсоветском пространстве, речь, в частности, идет о практике «цветных революций» на постсоветском пространстве, которые были реализованы на Украине, в Грузии и Молдавии.

Russian TV Runs Blockbuster Trailer For Putin Phone-In

1 Share
Spring has come and with it Vladimir Putin's annual phone-in session, complete with its Hollywood-style trailer.
Russian television aired the promotional clip ahead of the April 16 event, during which the Russian president fielded questions from across Russia in a televised event that typically lasts about four hours.

Putin begins the 45-second clip by pledging that "the enemy will not pass."
Russia's annexation of Crimea, he says, showed that people are "full of determination to fight for their land."
The video pictures Putin inspecting a navy ship, paying tribute to fallen World War II soldiers, and shaking hands with several world leaders -- all of them non-Western -- to a dramatic soundtrack reminiscent of action movies.
A deep-voiced narrator chimes in with slogans such as "the most burning issues" and "answers to the challenges of our times."
The trailer contains the customary snub to the United States, with Putin dismissing accusations that it behaves aggressively by wryly claiming the United States has military bases "across the entire globe."
A video collage also shows him appearing to stare down his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama with a smirk.
The clip ends with Putin thanking adulating crowds for their support. 
You can find the video as it appears on state TV (without subtitles) here.

Brent crude oil hits 2015 high as U.S. output slows

1 Share
LONDON (Reuters) - Oil rose more than 3 percent on Thursday, pushing Brent crude to a 2015 high above $63 per barrel on increasing evidence that U.S. production is peaking, moving to balance a market that has been in heavy oversupply for more than a year.
Oil prices collapsed in the six months to January, pushing Brent down more than 60 percent to almost $45 a barrel.
But the market has gradually recovered this year as much lower prices have discouraged oil exploration and production, especially in the United States.
"People are realizing that the U.S. production juggernaut is slowing, at least for now," said Virendra Chauhan, oil analyst at London-based consultancy Energy Aspects.
Brent crude futures for June LCOc1 on Thursday hit $63.29 a barrel, the highest since December, after the previous much weaker front-month futures contract, for May, expired on Wednesday.
By 10 a.m. EDT, June Brent was at $62.52 a barrel, down 80 cents from the previous close for June, but up sharply from Wednesday's close for May at $60.32.
U.S. crude CLc1 was at $55.79, down 60 cents, after hitting a 2015 high of $56.69 on Wednesday.
U.Scrude has been logging its strongest upswing this year as ebbing fears of an inventory overflow and renewed hedging in far-distance futures flatten the forward curve.
U.S. crude oil production has begun to slow after several years of very sharp growth, industry data show.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries said in its monthly report on Thursday that U.S. oil liquids output would increase by only 740,000 barrels per day (bpd) in 2015, down from growth of 1.64 million bpd last year.
Reuters technical analyst Wang Tao told Reuters Global Oil Forum that Brent could rise toward $70 a barrel in the near term, but that a sharp downturn could happen after that.
U.S. oil prices jumped on Wednesday after U.S. inventories built up more slowly than expected, although still to a new record. Talks between major oil producers also triggered speculation of production cuts, even though most analysts said these were unlikely.
Despite the oil price rally, the market remains oversupplied, analysts say.
"The recent bounce comes despite a surge in OPEC crude oil production in March which is likely to have been sustained in April," ANZ bank said.

Russia blames U.S. for security crises, turmoil in Ukraine

1 Share
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Top Russian officials accused the United States on Thursday of seeking political and military dominance in the world and sought to put blame on the West for international security crises, including the conflict in east Ukraine.
Evoking Cold War-style rhetoric, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said a drive by the United States and its allies to bring Kiev closer to the West was a threat to Moscow and had forced it to react.
"The United States and its allies have crossed all possible lines in their drive to bring Kiev into their orbit. That could not have failed to trigger our reaction," he told an annual security conference in Moscow.
Echoing his comments, General Valery Gerasimov, chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, told the meeting: "Considering themselves the winners of the Cold War, the United States decided to reshape the world to fit its needs.
"Aiming at complete dominance, Washington stopped taking into account the interests of other countries and respect international law."
Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine last March following what it says was an "unconstitutional coup" in which street protests toppled a Moscow-allied Ukrainian president in Kiev after he ditched a deal to move closer to the European Union.
Separatist unrest then spread to eastern, Russian-speaking regions of Ukraine where fighting between Kiev's troops and pro-Russian rebels killed more than 6,000 people. The West says Moscow drives the rebellion, sends serving Russian troops there and provides the rebels with arms, training and intelligence.
President Vladimir Putin on Thursday repeated Moscow's denial, saying Russian military forces were not in Ukraine and denying that it was providing troops and support for pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.
Shoigu blamed the violence on Kiev and sought to dismiss Western criticism that Russia was forcibly remaking European borders, pointing to Western military involvement in Serbia, Iraq and Libya.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the conference, attended by envoys from China, Iran, Pakistan and some of Russia's allies, that Kiev had to deliver on its obligations under peace agreements reached in Minsk to "safeguard unity of the Ukrainian state".
Both said Moscow saw the development of the U.S.-led missile shield in Europe as tilting the post-war balance of power and a threat to its strategic nuclear deterrent capability. Shoigu said Moscow was taking steps to counteract that.
Gerasimov told delegates the eastward expansion of NATO posed another major threat to Russia and criticized the alliance for boosting military exercises involving eastern members.
NATO says intensified drills are aimed at reassuring eastern members worried by Moscow.
"It's clear that measures taken by NATO to strengthen the bloc and increase its military capabilities are far from being defensive," he said.

Police Search Moscow Offices Of Khodorkovsky-Founded Organization

1 Share
Russian police on April 16 searched the Moscow offices of Open Russia, a pro-democracy initiative founded by the exiled Russian tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
Open Russia said several police officers entered the organization’s Moscow office after presenting a search warrant.
Open Russia released a copy of the search warrant, which accused the organization of planning to print leaflets calling for "extremist activities."
The search warrant also alleged that Open Russia was planning to distribute the leaflets at an opposition rally in Moscow on April 19.
Khodorkovsky's press secretary Olga Pispanen told Dozhd TV that the group never planned to take part in the April 19 rally.
Russian opposition groups announced on April 15 that they would hold single-person actions in Moscow on April 19 rather than gathering together for a mass protest rally, which requires approval from authorities.
Khodorkovsky currently resides in Switzerland after serving more than 10 years in a Russian jail on embezzlement charges.
He maintains his innocence and says authorities filed politically motivated charges against him because of his opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Захарченко заявил, что боевики захватят Мариуполь

1 Share
В разговоре с журналистом американского агентства "Блумберг" главарь боевиков Александр Захарченко высказал уверенность, при Мариуполь "будет взят"
Главарь террористической группировки "Донецкая народная республика" Александр Захарченко сделал очередное заявление о том, что "рано или поздно" прифронтовой Мариуполь в Донецкой области войдет "в состав" псевдореспублики. По его словам, силы оккупантов и местных пособников могут захватить город "даже не обстреливая", говорится в интервью террориста агентству 
Bloomberg

"Мариуполь легко обойти, и они (украинские военнослужащие - ред) сдадутся. Мы можем это сделать, даже не обстреливая город", - сказал он. 

При этом главарь "ДНР" отметил, что боевиков "заботит" безопасность жителей Мариуполя, так как "там живут наши матери, сестры", и пожаловался на то, что СМИ делают из террористов "кровожадных зверей, которые будут уничтожать все, что есть на пути". 

В ходе разговора с журналистом Bloomberg Захарченко заявил, что боевики располагают 23 тысячами бойцов и еще 30 тыс. "резервистов", и отметил, что возможность возобновления военных действия после двухмесячного "перемирия", по его мнению, составляет 90%.

US Lawmakers Warn of Russian 'Weaponization of Information'

1 Share
Published April 16, 2015
A number of Western officials, including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, have voiced concerns about unprecedented efforts by Russia to spread misinformation across the entire area of the former Soviet Union and much of Europe. Experts at a congressional panel in Washington described the vast Russian media operation as “the weaponization of information.” VOA’s Congressional Correspondent Cindy Saine has more from Capitol Hill.

Под прицелом чужих ПРО: глава Генштаба рассказал о взаимоотношениях РФ с НАТО

Герасимов предупредил о вероятности размораживания конфликтов в соседних странах, наращивании альянсом своих вооруженных сил и стягивании ПРО к границам РФ 
Начальник Генерального штаба Вооруженных сил РФ Валерий Герасимов в четверг, 16 апреля выступил с большой речью на IV Московской конференции по международной безопасности. Основной темой выступления стали взаимоотношения с НАТО и угроза для России со стороны Альянса.
В своих попытках совладать с РФ Вашингтон и его партнеры по НАТО все чаще пытаются создавать очаги нестабильности у российских границ и провоцировать кризисные ситуации в регионах, граничащих с РФ, - констатировал Герасимов. Для этого используется хорошо «обкатанная» на других странах технология «цветных революций», манипулирование протестным потенциалом населения «с использованием информационного пространства в сочетании с политическими, экономическими, гуманитарными и другими невоенными мерами».
Серьезную угрозу, по словам генерала, представляет и постепенное стягивание к российским границам натовских систем ПРО. Оно уже привело к тому, что в зону поражения натовских крылатых ракет наземного и морского базирования попала вся европейская часть РФ.

Тлеющие костры под стенами государства

Сценарии госпереворотов по технологии «цветных революций» успешно реализованы во многих государствах постсоветского пространства: в Молдавии, Грузии и, конечно, на Украине, - отметил Герасимов. В результате к власти пришли силы, имеющие прозападную и антироссийскую ориентацию. Если на территориях Приднестровья, Южной Осетии, Абхазии, Нагорного Карабаха снова вспыхнут вооруженные конфликты, Россия окажется в крайне сложной ситуации, получив очаги напряженности вдоль своих границ, - предупредил генерал. А вероятность «размораживания» упомянутых конфликтов возрастает на фоне обострения отношений РФ с Европой и Соединенными Штатами, что в свою очередь «грозит возникновением вооруженных столкновений вблизи границ нашего государства».
Американская сторона время от времени заверяет Москву в отсутствии антироссийских намерений, однако сама в это время продолжает реализовывать планы противоракетной обороны, создавая «реальную угрозу для российских стратегических ядерных сил», - заявил Герасимов. «Развертывание ПРО расценивается нами как очередной шаг США и их союзников по демонтажу сложившейся системы международной безопасности в своем стремлении к мировому доминированию», - подчеркнул он.

Ракетная угроза

За четыре последних года комплексы противоракетной обороны появились вблизи от южных, восточных и западных границ РФ. «Корабли, оснащенные комплексами ПРО «Иджис», выполняют задачи в акваториях Средиземного и Черного морей. Осуществляется размещение наземных комплексов ПРО «Иджис-Эшор» в Румынии и Польше. Создаются группировки противоракетных средств США в Азиатско-Тихоокеанском регионе при участии Японии и Южной Кореи», - рассказал генерал.
По сути, добавил он, речь идет о создании эшелонированной системы перехвата баллистических ракет, которое, к тому же, сопровождается нарушением американской стороной положений Договора о ракетах средней и меньшей дальности - одного из важнейших документов, обеспечивающих стратегическую стабильность в Европе. «Учитывая, что корабли противоракетной обороны ВМС США оснащаются аналогичными пусковыми установками, в зону поражения крылатых ракет наземного и морского базирования попадает вся европейская часть Российской Федерации», - сообщил начальник Генштаба.
Наконец, добавил Герасимов, комплексы ПРО «Иджис» обладают и значительным противоспутниковым потенциалом, что создает угрозу российской орбитальной группировке космических аппаратов.

Кому быть террористом – решает Америка

«Даже не учитывая политический аспект действий руководства НАТО и оценивая ситуацию только со стратегической точки зрения, невозможно не заметить негативного влияния складывающейся обстановки на военную безопасность России», - заявил Герасимов.
Общая численность вооруженных сил альянса, по данным Генштаба РФ, превысила 3,7 миллионов человек. Вашингтон не желает учитывать интересы других стран, и постепенно разрушает мировую систему безопасности. «Посчитав себя «победителями» в «холодной войне» США решили перекроить мир исключительно под себя. Стремясь к абсолютному доминированию, Вашингтон перестал в своей политике учитывать интересы других государств и сделал для себя необязательным соблюдение норм международного права, - подчеркнул генерал. - Американское руководство, не особо беспокоясь о последствиях, теперь само решает, какое государство является «демократическим», а какое - «империей зла», кто - борцы за свободу, а кто - террористы и сепаратисты».

Чем ответит Россия?

Что же намерена предпринимать в складывающихся обстоятельствах Российская Федерация? Как отметил Герасимов, в ближайшее время Россия будет наращивать потенциал своих военных баз, расположенных за рубежом.
«В рамках долгосрочных соглашений с Абхазией, Арменией, Киргизией, Таджикистаном и Южной Осетией наращивается потенциал размещенных на их территориях российских военных баз. Он является гарантом безопасности и стратегической стабильности в этих регионах», - подчеркнул глава Генштаба.

Ополченцы смогут взять город без серьезного сопротивления
Мариуполь рано или поздно войдет в состав ДНР. Об этом в интервью Bloomberg заявил глава самопровозглашенной республики Александр Захарченко.
По его словам, ополченцы смогут взять город без серьезного сопротивления.
Ополченцы переживают за судьбу жителей Мариуполя, продолжил Захарченко и попросил не делать из ополченцев кровожадных зверей, которые будут уничтожать все на своем пути.

Территории, которые находятся под контролем ДНР, не стремятся попасть в состав Украины, утверждает Александр Захарченко.
Он оценил возможность возобновления военных действий после двухмесячного перемирия в 90%. По мнению Захарченко, украинские силовики активно готовятся к ведению наступательных действий, усиливают технику, передовые позиции.
